Twain . I realize now, that people who do not like to read, usually, are people who have a hard time reading, or have an attention deficit disorder. Something that should have been dealt with when the child was young...perhaps a brain-eye disconnect. Don't always blame the child, please. It isn't their fault.

This is my philosophy about writing beauty columns for #BuffaloMagazine. Like the time I wrote about going to #BiggestLoserResortNiagara in Java Center, NY. We worked out for four hours a day on a 1500 calorie diet. That was painful and rewarding.

A lot of us are afraid of writing. We are afraid of what our creativity says about us but life is too short. We will be wrong - lot's of times - so we may as well get down and dirty with the writing anyway...

a good library will never be too neat, or too dusty, because somebody will always be in it, taking books off the shelves and staying up late reading them.

"some books are meant / to be read just like this / alone, with the evening, / a bowl of fruit ripening / waiting for the reader / to grow hungry, but / she won't, the book / will devour her, / and it / will soon / become / morning."

"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them." -Mark Twain

carl sagan - “Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”
